In the world of high-end, high-end gaming desktops It’s hard to stand out from the previous generation, but the Origin PC Millennium 5000T is a little different. Builds with Corsair-made cases start at $2,332, but our $5,345 configuration failed with an Intel Core i9-12900KS CPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition graphics card, and plenty of storage. With attractive case fans and custom printing. This jumbo tower is a complete package. (As you’d expect from the price), gamers can drool with noticeable frame rates and playable performance at 4K resolutions, and anyone who uses their PC for video production or media creation will be treated as such. together After a certain point in this price level It’s all about your style and preference, but the Millennium 5000T is a solid and flashy alternative to the small but powerful HP Omen 45L and Falcon Northwest Tiki.
Design: Big, bold and beautiful (if you have the room).
No wonder at this price. But this is a well put together desktop. Built into Corsair’s iCUE 5000T case (we reviewed the iCUE 5000T RGB separately), the massive tower PC is neatly and impressively assembled. Three vertical RGB fans are visible through the front panel. while the left panel is made of tempered glass.

Through the glass you can see the real sights. The internal components are neatly arranged and illuminated with more internal lighting, RGB fans, and RGB memory. We’ll delve into the exact components in no time. Of course, the lighting is customizable. The blue on display here, though, is satisfying.

to get the clearest view That’s the custom PCMag branded side panel. Origin has a UV printing option when ordered. Lets you choose from a group of images (Origin logo, some Crysis images and some abstract art) for this review. The system builders took the initiative and decorated our units with our logos. which we were delighted to see on our test bench. The red case lights also suit our look.

The chassis is naturally a big factor before we talk about the components, so let’s get into the details. certain Some towers are slightly thinner or shorter, but the 5000T works really well.
as mentioned There are three 120mm fan arrays, two on the front of the case. One is on the front panel. and another hidden on the right side of the wall. What’s unclear is the third set of fans at the bottom of the tower. And there are 3 radiator fans mounted above on the CPU cooler. One fan acts as the rear exhaust.

The tower is ready for expansion between four 2.5-inch drive bays and two 3.5-inch drive bays for other upgrades. There may be clearance for a 250mm power supply, a 170mm CPU cooler, and a 400mm GPU. The PSU is nicely wrapped and not easily accessible without removing some panels. The right edge of the cladding has a removable piece that blocks access to the cable.
Removing this and accessing the power supply connection is pretty annoying. Because the shroud blocks most of the access. Hopefully you don’t have much reason to go in there often. When the system arrives fully Cables are also routed neatly so changing, moving or accessing the bundle can be a bit of a challenge. Hopefully you don’t have to move any parts. immediately after ordering
Otherwise, this case is pretty easy to use. The side doors are accessible without tools. Opens with a moderate drag and closes easily and safely. This makes it easier to maintain and makes Origin feel a little more premium. Especially with tempered glass, outside the PSU area, the generous size of the case provides easy access to the GPU, RAM and internal storage.

for connection The front ports aren’t actually on the front panel, but on the top edge of the top you’ll find two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one USB-C connector and a headphone jack, as well as a power and reset button.

Configuration Review: Only the Best for You
Let’s answer the question you’ve been shouting: What’s in this beauty? at $5,345 for our test configuration. You’d be right to expect some high-end components around. The foundation is MSI’s MPG Z690 Force Wi-Fi motherboard, which is an expensive ATX option on its own.
This board uses an Intel Core i9-12900KS processor, 32GB of Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR5 memory (4,800MHz 16GB sticks), 1TB Corsair MP600 Core Gen 4 solid-state drive, solid-state drive. The 2TB Samsung SSD 870 QVO (i.e. secondary storage) and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition graphics card processor (reviewed limited edition Core i9-12900K) are 16-core flamethrowers. 24 threads with surging performance even when it’s hot. You can read more about CPU at the review link; For what it’s worth, our Origin Tower generates just the usual fan noise and heat with the cooling settings used.
Corsair acquired Origin in 2019. Most of the add-on components, such as fans and RAM, are from Corsair, the power supply is Corsair RM850x, while the liquid CPU cooler is the Corsair iCUE H150i Elite Capellix with an LCD (Origin logo seen in the picture). ) UV printing brings the price down, adding $100 compared to conventional systems. The $99 laser etching option allows you to submit your own images to be etched into the side panels.

Obviously our build aims to beat all the benchmarks and games that come in. You don’t have to spend that much money. But the top-tier systems, typically Millennium, aren’t cheap. Pricing for the Millennium 5000T is $2,332 for a configuration that skips the bells and whistles of most component and case upgrades and uses an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU, along with less storage and memory. go down Most of the remaining costs come from this case. Labor involved in clean structures and technical support
Millennium 5000T test: ‘Alder Lake’ Core i9 and RTX 3090 ready to play
to see how Origin’s parts perform in benchmark tests. We have compiled a comparison system as shown below. All of them are expensive high-end rigs that deliver maximum performance and great visual setup gaming, so the Millennium will fit in well.
The MSI Aegis RS is something unusual here at just $2,499, but it shows us what a desktop with a more reasonable price tag can do. The rest of the systems fell between $4,500 and the $5,345 Millennium tested system.
UL’s PCMark 10 simulates a variety of real-world and content creation workflows to measure overall performance for office-intensive tasks such as word processing, spreadsheets, web browsing, and video conferencing. We also ran PCMark 10’s Full System Drive Test to assess the load times and throughput of the desktop boot drive.
All three benchmarks focus on the CPU using all available cores and threads. To assess the PC’s suitability for processor-intensive workloads, Maxon’s Cinebench R23 uses the company’s Cinema 4D engine to render complex scenes, while Primate Labs’ Geekbench 5.4 Pro simulates popular apps from renderings. From PDF and speech recognition to machine learning. Finally, we use HandBrake, the open-source video codec, to convert a 12-minute video clip from 4K resolution to 1080p (lower times are fine, but less time is better). than)
Our final performance test is the PugetBench for Photoshop workstation vendor Puget Systems, which uses version 22 of Adobe’s renowned image editor, Creative Cloud, to evaluate the PC’s performance for content creation and multimedia applications. It’s an automated extension that performs many common and GPU-accelerated Photoshop tasks, from opening, rotating, resizing, and saving images to applying masks. Gradient Fill and Filter
Even in this high-end field, the Millennium leads the way in most performance tests. The Velocity Micro Raptor Z55 delivers up close, but somehow the Origin is one of the strongest in the lineup of top-of-the-line systems. If you invest in a desktop like this Probably a portable PC for all kinds of workloads at home and in gaming.
Usually results in the PCMark 10 Storage test are tightly grouped without much change. Origin’s score is somewhat below par. Although it’s still an SSD, so the base speed is fairly high.
Graphics and gameplay testing
We tested the graphics of Windows PCs with two DirectX 12 gaming emulations from UL’s 3DMark: Night Raid (simpler suitable for laptops with integrated graphics) and Time Spy (more demanding Suitable for gaming devices with discrete GPU)
Additionally, we ran three real-world game tests using the built-in benchmarks of F1 2021, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Rainbow Six Siege. open world action adventure and competitive esports shooters respectively Valhalla and Siege run at 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolutions at their top picture quality settings, while F1 runs a second time at 4K with DLSS anti-aliasing enabled. that improves Nvidia’s performance
The millennium is not the clear leader in most of these benchmarks. But at this level, it’s basically random selection. Most are at or near the top level. And just a few frames behind Tiki in our testing of the most demanding game (Assassin’s Creed Valhalla), it’s as good as or better than any machine here, and in short, will crush any game. that you sent in Definitely deserves it in this price range. But the results really show where the RTX 3090 flexes its muscles. In Valhalla and F1, the system runs over 100fps at 1440p resolution. You don’t even need to think about any setting callbacks.
The results also show how difficult it is to play games at 4K. Even with today’s fastest graphics cards. In Valhalla, these systems barely hit 60fps, with some of the best CPU, GPU and cooling on the market. F1 2021 is less demanding and DLSS helps a lot, but 60ps AAA games and Open-world games at 4K are almost impossible even with these monster components. It’s hardly a specific issue for Millennium and 1440p runs very smoothly.
Verdict: Expensive Mega-Tower Game, But Worth It
Configuring our Millennium 5000T review will cost you a lot of money. (Even assuming you don’t want your PCMag logo or heraldry on it.) So this jump isn’t for the faint-of-heart or the wallet. If you’re shopping in this near-infinite price range, Origin is a great choice. There was nothing very bad to say about it other than the price of nosebleeds. (and the starting price, though Origin offers other models) and a nitpick or two about internal access.
after one price point The design and aesthetics of these systems are completely personal. But we can declare that the Millennium is the most handsome and well-crafted gaming device. Like one of the fastest desktops we’ve tested, the Raptor Z55 and Omen 45L offer different styles, while the Tiki is the best choice for saving desk space. But the Origin dream machine is an equally worthwhile option.
Origin PC Millennium 5000T
Origin’s handsome gaming tower, which favors parts from its mother Corsair, is huge and expensive by configuration. But the premium Core i9 CPU and GeForce RTX 3090 GPU ensure stellar 1080p and 1440p frame rates. and even 60fps performance at 4K.
